Speed run of Metroid II: Return of Samus done in 3 segments, completed on January 18 2005. The displayed end time is ignored due to a flaw in the game's saving system which rounds the time down to whole minutes. The listed time is from the start of spawning until saving/the end. Author's comments: I actually had no intention of attempting an any% run at first, but tried anyway. My first few attempts were single-segment runs, since saving adds an extra 5 seconds to the final time due to the... Topics: Metroid II, any%, Game Boy
Pure speed run of Metroid II: Return of Samus, completed on March 16 2004. The displayed end time is ignored due to a flaw in the game's saving system which rounds the time down to whole minutes. The listed time is from the start of spawning until saving/the end. Author's comments: I bought metroid 2 off eBay cheap in december 2003 to try a speed run of it, I hadn't played it in about a decade. I got lost like everyone, and when I didn't like the quality of other maps out there, I made my own... Topics: Metroid II, any%, Game Boy
Speed run of Tomb Raider II's Assault Course, done on November 14 2006. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: I discovered a way to get around TR2's broken screen recorder support thanks to Hypercam, so I did this rerun simply to submit a MUCH better looking video. Along the way I also discovered a few quirks to the Assault Course, and seem to have sussed it out now (and have edited the tips to reflect that). Thanks to... Topic: Tomb Raider: Tomb Raider II
http://tasvideos.org/2180S.html This is a tool-assisted speedrun, made on an emulator, using frame-by-frame shooting, savestates, and rerecords to overcome reaction time and human error. As such, it is purely a form of entertainment, and is not designed to show skill. Topics: TAS, Tool-assisted speedrun, Cheetahmen II, was0x
Speed run of Mega Man II for Gameboy. The run was done in segments using passwords, and each avi appended together to make one file. Author's comments: Aside from Metroid II: Return of Samus, Mega Man 2 for the Gameboy was my favorite game on that system. The short length and easyness of the game had me going back for more, and always finding it. Now I've been able to take those years of playing it, and put it into a speed run. So sit back, and watch as I destroy Wily's evil plans once again.... favoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Mega Man: Mega Man II, Game Boy
Single-segment 100% run of Metroid II: Return of Samus, done on March 15 2004. Available as either DivX or MPEG4.

I think this is the best route and the fastest possible to play through this complex but yet fun game. I think you have played this so comments about the gameplay are unnecessary. I take hits because it saves time, and I jump through enemies because else I would be pushed backwards. I got 1 hit that wasn't intentional pretty early in the game but I didn't...

Speed run of Unreal II: The Awakening on Easy difficulty in 40 segments, completed on July 12 2007. Available in three versions: low/normal/high quality DivX. Author's comments: I was bored with downloading porn the other day so I thought that it's the right time to run a completely random game that I'm not familiar with. Then I saw this topic at the PC board, saying that a U2 run has a "on hold" status. I checked the thread, hoping to find some information on possible shortcuts and... favorite ( 1 reviews ) Topic: Unreal: Unreal II

Publication: http://tasvideos.org/594M.html This time Wily is back, or actually forwards â in time that is; where he plans to destroy the future and bring back technology to destroy the past. Join Mega Man as he too travels to the future to prevent Wily and face his greatest enemy yet. This run doesn't really perform any mind boggling glitches like some other Mega Man runs on this site, but it still has the same classic action, and pulls off some very unlikely maneuvers that are enjoyable to...

That's really hard to do.

For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/1467M.html In this second game of the series, watch nearly three and a half hours of luck manipulation so intense that it took scripting and bot-work to perform most of it. Most of the bosses in the second half of the run die in one or two rounds. This run plays on "Ouch!" difficulty, which was intended to be the hardest difficulty level.

Publication: http://tasvideos.org/865M.html This is Metroid II: Return of Samus completed with all the items collected. Being truthful to the original Metroid values, the game holds many items cleverly hidden, so finding all of them is not an easy task. That being said, Metroid II doesn't keep track of the collected items' percentage. Moreover, the game has two excessive Energy tanks and an additional copy of each beam. It's been agreed that the author should take all the E-tanks, and at least... Topics: Metriod, II, 2, Return, Of, Samus, 100p, 100%, 100, Percent, GB, Game, Boy, TAS, Tool, Assisted,...
